So sad for Susan's family loss.
I haven't done much today, just taking it easy.
Does anyone else here have the Jackie Lawson Advent calendar online?
I enjoy these so much every year.
Joy, is your family doing something special for your Sunday birthday?
I am all done with Christmas, except for Christmas dinner. Good feeling.

Mornin gals

Susan, my condolences to you and your family as you deal with the early stages of grief yet again. We all know when we lose people in our lives, relatives or friends alike, that they are in a better place and no longer suffering but that doesn't make the loss any easier to deal with. Hugs.

Joy, glad your family is stepping up to help during this busy season. I know you will emoticon until you're stronger and have more endurance to do all the things you want to do. As I get older, I don't NEED to do all that I used to. It just isn't that important any more. As you say Life is Good. Love the pics of GGS. Children and cats love boxes and one is as entertaining as the other.

Judy, your daughter and family must be so proud and pleased to have their baby represent Baby Jesus. He will likely sleep through the whole service and not even know he slept in an unusual place. Enjoy your new music.

Caz, you are like the Energizer Bunny just going and going!! Nice that you snuggle with DH in the evenings though. I am usually on the computer in evenings or crocheting something or other. Have fun shopping today.

Anne, what is a hob? I DO really like your kitchen. You are likely messing it up these days baking all kinds of Christmas goodies, once you get used to where you put everything!!

Hi to all I haven't mentioned and to everyone, mentioned or not, I send wishes for a happy day.

My condolences, Susan. Always hard to go through this, but especially during the holidays. It's a pretty morning here, with a layer of snow and a few flakes in the air. I woke up early so decided to get up and go to morning Mass. Son and d-i-l are closing on their brand new home today, so I'm excited for them and hoping all goes well. Found out my new grandson Max will be the star of the Sunday School program, playing baby Jesus! Wish I could be there! Finally made the rosettes yesterday. Quiet day today. I got some new piano music so maybe will spend time just playing for enjoyment after I practice for church and Christmas.

Morning All, Susan, I'm so sorry for your loss; it's never easy. Still, it's best to trust God's timing. Yet, we can grow weary of losing loved ones; I fear it's a time of life thing. Hugs.

Busy holiday weekend ahead here. My kids are stepping up so I can pace myself. Even the little guy came in this morning and went back to sleep. Time to wrap a few gifts while he's sleeping. I'm feeling fine; but have really slowed down. That's hard to adjust to and hard to explain. Still, life is good and I'm grateful. emoticon

Hi Guys

Susan I am so sorry, my condolences to you and your family.
Joy glad you're able to have some fun with GGS. great pictures.
Verna I'd rather be on the go than sat on the coach bored and lazy, the only time I sit during the day is to talk with you guys first thing, for meals and then to snuggle with DH in evening for some TV after 7pm.
HI Cat and Judy and Anne

Penultimate Christmas shop today; will keep a smile on myself and slow down no matter how frantic everyone else is..........I find it's the best way not to get stressed by it all. Oh and I'll probable put on my Santa hat (it amazing how many people smile and get out of your way if they think your a little scatty!!

Hello Ladies,

again my apologies for not being around much. My brother in law passed away this evening. We have been praying that he make it through Christmas but unfortunately God had other plans. He is now in the arms of our Lord with no more pain or suffering.

We are trying to support one another as we grieve the lost of a wonderful man.
I will be back in about a week or so after everything has been dealt with and we have had some time to get past another tragedy in this family.

Love your sink, Anne. I've wanted one with a built in drain board for awhile. Your kitchen looks great, I love the natural finish light wood cabinets. Do you have a stove/oven? Suppose that and the frig are just out of the shot.
At any rate - enjoy it.
Joy, I think you are right about having someone staying with you will bring both of you out of your comfort zones. It's good you can help these young ones out in order for them to go for the education gold.
Everyone, have a great day.
I hit the gym, walked, shopped, did housework and now am going to sit a bit.

Joy, who needs to buy toys when the boxes they come in are more fun! :) Beautiful kitchen! I wonder if I'd enjoy coking more if mine was more convenient and updated..... Verna, when I bought my new sax last year I asked son if he wanted his old one (which I'd been using since he graduated). At one time he had said he would like to have it, but now he has changed his mind and didn't want it. He's a full-time firefighter now, so no music except on his iPod when he works out! Daughter, with her job, family and activities, hasn't kept up too much on her flute, but tries to play occasionally. Just got a call to schedule my colonoscopy and they are booked until March, and that's fine with me. If my stomach problem continues and doesn't get better with the medication, they will probably push it up since it would no longer be a "screening", but a diagnostic. Let's hope there's no need for that!

Morning everyone

Everyone is busy, busy, busy, including me, so this is gonna be short!!

Joy you have some lovely entertainment to look forward to, Nutcracker, Jazz, GGS. Have fun. Great news that you are adjusting and feeling better.

Mayie, yes God does work in mysterious ways!! Peace and Quiet is always better than chaos and drama. I hope your DD figures out what she is so angry about soon and is able to get some help to put that to rest and move on with a "nicer" life.

Caz, you are a busy gal, always on the run. Good thing you're retired!!

Cat, you'll be back on track with the bowling and will likely be better than ever. I remember well bowling the lights out for a few weeks and then nothing!! Patience my friend.

Anne, your kitchen is one I have only seen in magazines!!! You will no doubt be cooking up some terrific meals. The long weeks of chaos in your house is finally peaceful and you can put everything back into place or into new places whichever suits your fancy and I'm sure you will be buying new things for your new kitchen. Yes, good thing you had insurance that covered the cost.

Patti, Susan and all others, have a lovely day. The sun is shining here and I hope it is shining in all your worlds.

Good Morning All! Today is a welcome break in a busy week! GGS will be back tomorrow and Sat. evening my DGD will be dancing in the Nutcracker!(center of photo)
I still have to check on a Christmas program with the Jazz at the library group tonight. "tis the season".
9 Months is a long time Anne! But the kitchen is beautiful!! Is that a big window above your sink? Looks grande! Good to hear from you.
All is well here, finally. Still adjusting things but the important thing is I am adjusting. GGS and I had a lot of fun yesterday.
Smiles.

Quick visit gals.

Good to see you are all quite busy. Hope it all works out with the medical appointments etc.

Daughter stopped by for a visit today after her dental appointment. Her mouth was sore and she was, like usual, stressed out. She'd lost her keys somewhere and was hoping to find them at my place. Ha! She hasn't been here in weeks and I think I would have found them. My tiny apartment went from quiet to chaos in under a minute. So many complaints. So many F bombs. She never talked like that when she lived here. So much drama. I may feel neglected when the phone does not ring for days and days but I definitely prefer the peace and quiet. God works in mysterious ways.

Hope you are all having an enjoyable day.

And so it goes, the Christmas hustle is on!! Sounds like the dance we used to do in the 70's!! The pace is about the same anyway, if nothing else. Actually, I'm almost done with the Christmas stuff. No exchange gifts this year so I've been told. My personal shopping is done and so is the baking after yesterday's bake day with a friend. AND yes, it's all in the freezer!!

Judy, you DO HAVE a talented family. How lovely! Closest I've ever gotten to music is in the church choir and that's not saying I'm any good at it but I did enjoy it. In my old age!! my voice has changed. Was Soprano, now, who knows - not a choir member any longer. Your son is very talented for sure, if he doesn't practice. Do you suppose he will follow music as a career? Oh what a sweet gift for your granddaughter. I hope your new medicine does the trick for your tummy and that you don't need to go through drinking that yukky stuff for the colonoscopy. Prayers going your way for nothing serious happening in your body.

Joy, glad to hear you are doing well. If I remember correctly, you have a busy week. Just don't overdo it and play yourself out.

Caz, yup I get it, doctors, groceries and lab tests are the norm now it seems. Can always be worse though so we should count our blessings when we go for groceries knowing we are still able to eat---sometimes too much. LOL

Well, better run, having guests this afternoon and they are staying for dinner so need to figure out what I'm going to serve. Have a wonderful day gals.

Verna, my daughter was a very accomplished flute player and got a music scholarship for college, and also played piano and sang in choir and ensembles. The two of us, from the time she was in 6th grade, played piano/flute duets for church and other events. My son took after me and played alto sax -- he probably had more natural musical talent than my daughter, but she practiced a lot and he didn't practice at all! When I'd get to concerts I'd sit down and look at the program and see that he was going to be having a solo and I would just cringe because I hadn't seen his horn at home being practiced for the entire school year -- yet I was always amazed that he nailed the solos every time! My oldest granddaughter is 7 and is has a very nice voice and loves to sing. I got her a karaoke machine for Christmas in the hopes she will use it to hone her talent! Got some medicine for my tummy troubles and will try that for a few weeks and see if it does the trick. Otherwise, I have a colonoscopy scheduled for January and if I'm still having troubles they'll just scope from both ends to see what's going on.

Not much new here. Physio, resting and reading. Just finished the book I started at this time last evening and will likely turn in soon. Verna: Sure sounds like fun to be baking with a friend. I would like that.

Take care, everyone.

Mornin girls

Joy, I think you and your grandson's SO will get along famously and in the end you will have a cherished friend forever.

Susan, hang in there and know we are all thinking about you and DH and all the extended family. A sickness such as this puts a damper on Christmas for sure. Congrats on another baby in the family. Do they live handy to you so you can get cuddles with that baby as well? Keep us posted.

Caz, you are a smart cookie knowing you will have to ride that bike today instead of venturing outside and possibly falling and hurting yourself. Lord knows we don't heal as quickly as we used to.

Judy, I bet the concert was fun to be at. Are any of your children or grands musically talented? Music is the BEST!!

Mayie, Cat, Anne hope all is well in your world.

Windy here today and it blew all night (I didn't sleep well with that Sleep Study paraphenalia all hooked up!!) We'll see what they say about this test and from there I will have to decide what I'm going to do. I expect I will get used to having something over or under my nose and a hose laying somewhere in the bed with me!! My neighbour mentioned her SO has some sort of appliance he places over his teeth and it has stopped his snoring. I'll see what these guys say and will find out more about it from the neighbour's SO.

Chores are done, breakky over and I'm half done here on SP After that I will head off to the gym and hurry back home to do some baking. A friend is visiting from BC and she is coming over this afternoon. We baked together last year and had so much fun doing that.

Toodaloo folks. Have a great day and let's all count our blessings.

Good Morning All, It's a GGS day and all is well.
Glad to hear from you Susan, thoughts and prayers go out to your family. Your GGD gets more and more precious; brings a smile everytime I see her.
Today is GGS's grandpa's birthday. He's so funny as he tries to take control of and plan his Grandpa's birthday and keeps telling me "where ALL the kids go!". Smiles. Cold here today but the snow has swept East of us and so far we've just gotten a dusting. Stay warm everyone!

Susan, thoughts are with you as you go through this difficult time with your brother-in-law. Your family situation is another example of "when God closes a door, He opens a window". Congratulations on yet another baby in the family. Last night was the chorus concert, and it was very good. The director has a lot of enthusiasm and really gets the kids to love singing, and it shows! Today's agenda is my doctor appointment, and then this evening our Women's Connection gathering. Joy, you are adventurous for taking in a student, but it can surely help you both out! It's difficult for kids these days to be able to make ends meet! I think you may find it hard to the household things maybe not being done "your way", but you are so very adaptable that I think it is the perfect solution for you both! I think I might make some rosettes today -- in honor of my grandmother. Fond memories of her making them and me eating them at Christmas time!

Hi Ladies,

I'm sorry I have not be on this site much lately but we are dealing with a very sick family member. My brother in law is dying of lung cancer and the family has all been rallying around him and my sister in law to offer support and love. My husband's family is very close with 8 children in all and we always come together in times of crisis. My sister in law is starting to break down and she needs all the love and support she can get. This morning we all met for breakfast to just give my sister in law some support and let her know we are all here for her.

I have been visiting my brother in law a couple times a week as he is a favorite and I want to be able to just give him some company while is in hospital. He has had a lot of ups and downs in the past week and we don't expect him to make it much longer. He is aware but very uncomfortable with much coughing which we are trying to keep him as comfortable as possible.

My second oldest granddaughter's birthday is today (she turned 20) and my daughter (her mom) has her birthday tomorrow. December is a busy month for us for sure.

Our nephew and his wife will have their first baby born tomorrow as they are inducing her. A bit of joy to alleviate the sorrow we are feeling.

My great granddaughter turns 1 month old on Thursday and is doing just great. Weare so very blessed to have her.


Our weather has turned quite cold here and we are just starting to get some snow now. They predict our Christmas will be white.
I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying this season of peace and joy so far.

Cat, It's something I've wanted to try for awhile; but it's hard to open your house to someone you don't know. My house is pretty convenient to campus. Long walk but easy bike ride. This will give me a feeling for how it could work and helps us both for awhile. May give me a connection to have a grad student in the med program in the future. She's my grandson's girlfriend, they met in pre-med classes. He's since going in a different direction with math and technology. She graduated from Morehead State University on Sat. He graduates in May. Both plan on going on to grad school at UK here in Lexington. She still has a very slim chance of getting a slot this coming semester (if someone leaves the program). If not, she will have a spot for sure in the fall. Meantime, if not school, she will work in a hospital or clinic here. He will finish up at MSU and they will move on together in some direction in May. Plans keep shifting and changing for them but always moving in a positive direction. This is the grandson that spent the summer at NASA in CA. Was offered a good job there and turned it down; wants to graduate first. She and I will house share; she's an adult and very responsible. She'll do her own shopping and cooking. In lieu of rent she will help with the house and yard. We'll work it out as we go along. I don't know her well; but know her well enough to be very comfortable with her. I'm the quirky one of the two of us. Will be good experience for us both. Smiles.

Joy, I know you mentioned a grad student moving in sometime back but refresh my memory. Who and why?
Mayie, wonky is a bit off, unsteady, unsettled, 'goofy'.
I'm with you on giving up personal feelings in a group. That's makes me wonky!!

Enjoyed the concert, although there is a new director this year and a little quality has been lost for now. Hopefully that will improve. Tonight is the chorus concert, so have plans to attend that also. Music is my "thing" and I enjoy it at all levels! Have an appointment tomorrow afternoon as I've been having some "tummy troubles" and have self-diagnosed as a possible ulcer. Want to get it checked out early as it likely isn't going to go away on its own, whatever it is! Very windy and damp today, and it's looking like we may get some ice.

Good Morning All! emoticon Clear and sunny but cold this morning. The snow is gone, for now. More coming tomorrow. Today will be an errand running day. The guest room is clean and empty; ready for my grad student to move in any time. Yesterday was productive on that front and I have another carload of donations to drop off today. Then off to the grocery. That will be crazy as snow is predicted this evening. Should be an interesting week. Stay warm everyone! emoticon

Hi girls
Joy hope you had a relaxing Sunday hun. I didn't venture out either!
Judy there is nothing better than snuggling down on the sofa to watch Xmas movies when it's miserable outside........was tempted to have some Xmas chocolates--------but I resisted.
Verna hope you got enjoyed the hockey match I used to play Right Wing at school, was quite good too.......even if I do say so myself LOL
Cat I can image the waft of baking emanating from your kitchen and it's making me hungry.
Mayie glad it's healing now.

Hi Patti

Miserable weather again today, the bike will get a pounding. Still no sign of Susan, will go on her page and say hi.

Hello gals.

Good news on the finger front . . . less red, less sore and less swollen.

CAT: Define 'wonky'. I'd like to use it but want to make sure I'm not making a fool of myself.

Verna: Thanks for the hot water/salt tip. I used to use something similar to that whenever I felt a sore throat coming on.

Wasn't feeling like being with others so went back to sleep instead of going to church. I was the designated 'Prayer Person of the Week' and I truly did not feel like taking the mic and doing the blah blah blah I'm so grateful . . . It's not that I don't feel grateful for many things . . . you gals being one of them . . . but I just don't like to be forced to speak when I don't want to. It's weird because more and more I seem to be enjoying my solitude.

Heading back to my latest book, Thief of Glory.

Night all.

I can not believe I missed posting yesterday. Wonder where I was??!
Today I have been baking cranberry orange bread and fruited bread. Nothing is working out the way it should and I am not pleased.
I feel kinda wonky today so perhaps that (I) is the problem.
Well, you know how it goes, the cook gets the spoils!!!!
Back to the grind tomorrow.
Everyone enjoy your Sunday evening.

Hey ladies, how's it going?

Mayie hope the finger feels better after the hot water/salt soak
Caz nice that you got done early and had time to relax. Nothing better than getting it done and then watching movies!!
Susan hope you and family are ok
Judy have a good time at the winter band concert. I loved those concerts when my guys were in high school. Such a huge difference between the winter one and spring one.
Joy hope your weather warms a bit so you can get outdoors for a little while.
Patti, Cat, Lynette and Anne if you're lurking, hi

The sun is lovely and bright again today so will try to get a long walk in sometime. He'd have nothing to do with me even putting a rope around his neck yesterday. He was feeling good and frisky and wanted to run, kick and jump instead. He outgrew his halter a month or so ago so I took it off but didn't have the brains to put a larger one on so now we may have to resort to other tactics. The longer it goes and the more he gets away from us the more he will think he is boss and that is just not so. He WILL be wearing a halter, the sooner the better. Won't happen today because we are off to watch the 6 year old grandson play hockey. Must run and get ready to go

Have a great day everyone

Susan, thoughts and prayers for your bil and his family. Always a difficult time, but especially during the holidays. Mayie, also be sure to keep your finger elevated above your heart as much as possible. Today is sunny and mild (for Minnesota, anyway) with no wind, so I may get in a walk. This afternoon is our high school winter band concert (had to be rescheduled due to bad weather on the original date), and then at 6 we are invited for a little holiday get-together with some friends for snacks and drinks. Watched two of those soppy Christmas movies yesterday myself, Caz!

Good Morning All, Cold out there this morning. I'm thinking icy roads as there's not much snow and there are many church closings. I'm staying in. Have plenty to do inside. Breathing the cold air is still difficult. I'm going to try going without the expectorant today. Trying to move on. Verna, love the picture of Rowdy; catches his spirit! Stay well everyone.

VERNA: Thanks. I'm going to try that . . . hot water soak with lots of salt. I've been keeping it clean and using lots of Polysporin. Doesn't seem to have gotten worse but rally can't say it's any better either.

Very quiet on the home front. Finished Bel Canto today and ready to start another book. Only 38 steps for the day but that partly because the FitBit is being uncooperative. Haven't the energy to worry about it.

Glad everyone appears to be well and busy.

Hi ladies

Caz don't work too hard today, save some for tomorrow---things that don't need electricity to get done!!

Cat, wiping up oil is not a job I like either --kind of like wiping up an egg that rolled off the counter onto the floor!! I always leave my eggs in the carton until I'm ready to crack them these days. Been a long time since one rolled off the counter. I hope you love your new fridge and stove I'm getting used to mine still --can't seem to get those burners regulated.

Susan I'm sending a little sunshine your way. I don't mind sharing!! emoticon
My wish is the same as your's, that your BIL doesn't suffer unneccesarily; that he is kept pain free by meds.

Mayie, you need to take care of your finger. I still resort to old school methods, by soaking it in as hot as you can stand water with plenty of salt in it. That always feels so good and eases the pain. Please don't wait too long before going to the doctor. You do have metal in your leg now and I've heard infection likes to run to those kind of areas. Take care of yourself.

Judy, do you still have the horse?? Glitter is pretty, no doubt about it and that pic shows how shiny all racing thoroughbreds are, they get showered after every race and every workout.

Hi Patti and Joy.

It's a lovely day out there and I need to get out and enjoy it. The heck with housework!! I'm off to the great outdoors. Have a great day everyone.

When I was about 8 years old, I LOVED horses, and my favorite was a brown horse with black mane, tail and stockings. Looks like Glitter fits the bill! I remember my Grandpa coming from Nebraska to visit us for a week or so and he would walk downtown with each of us kids one at a time and buy us something we liked. He bought me a ceramic horse that matched the above description, about 8 inches high. I treasured it! Went to the basketball game last night and it was a good one, which we ended up winning by just a few points. Not much on the agenda for today except playing for church tonight. Think I'll get a little cleaning done.

Hello gals.

Yes Verna, Glitter really is a beautiful animal. Not hard to tell it was a summer snap shot because it certainly doesn't look like that outside my window. Another cold and windy day.
A friend stopped by today to install spikes onto the bottom of my crutches. It's rare to see his son without a cast or some other injury but he felt it was important that I have the use of spikes for the next little while. Hopefully both the son and myself remain upright.

Managed to make a fairly deep cut in one of my fingers yesterday and I think it is infected. Red, sore and very very swollen so I removed the bandaid which I believed to be restricting the circulation. My relationship with pain has changed drastically since the accident. I was so adept at 'stuffing' negative feelings that I was rarely ever aware of pain. Now, not so much. I'm not crazy about this new found awareness but grateful that I spent so many years relatively pain free. Who knows what will happen after I've recovered?

My busy day yesterday was followed by relative calm today. Awoke with yet another headache.
They seem to be happening with all too much frequency lately.

Joy: Glad you continue to feel well. Susan: Praying for peace for your BIL and family.

Hope everyone enjoys their weekend. Stay safe. Find happiness.

Hi Gals,

cold and frigid here with high winds. I visited my brother in law in hospital today and my youngest daughter met up with me there. Doctor was there but we didn't want to stay to hear the news he had to deliver to my sister in law and her son. We know it won't be good but we are still hoping for a miracle. Lung cancer is taking it's toll on him. We are praying he can make it through Christmas without any suffering.

Verna, Glitter is so gorgeous. I absolutely love horses and he is a beauty.

Have a great weekend everyone.

What a beautiful horse, Verna.
Mayie, it's good to hear you having good physio sessions.
It's cold here but mostly sunny.
I haven't gotten to walk yet as this is appliance delivery/instal day. The dishwasher is in and now awaiting the range.
I broke a bottle of canola oil today with the oil running between the stove and cabinet so I'm glad the stove is coming out later so I can clean it. Not much glass but I'm sure I'll find some next week.

Looks like everyone is complaining about the coolness. It's -5 but sunny here and I'm heading out for a walk but before I go I wanted to leave you a bit of sunshine---this is Glitter taken in the summer at our daughter's.

Hope you enjoy it and have a wonderful day.

Sunshine here, although only 25 degrees it's not too bad. If my Christmas card order comes today, I think I'll walk to the post office for some fresh air and exercise. I "guilted" hubby into going to the high school basketball game last night and when it was half over he admitted he was glad I "urged" him to go, as he did enjoy it and even agreed that we'll go again tonight and continue to follow the team throughout the season. When our son played, his team placed 2nd in State in 2002, and we'd been going to his games since he was in 4th grade, so we have taken a break from bleacher butt, but it's time to get on board with the home team again!

Hello all.

Physio was excellent this morning. She worked me hard but I like it that way because I know I'm making progress. New exercises added to the already existing ones. At the end of my session I get to lay there for 15 minutes with heat on my neck and the TENS machine sending electrical impulses up my leg. This time I went for the full treatment and agreed to allow the technician to cover me with a soft blanket. Heavenly. She sometimes calls me 'hun' too. She has a soft and gentle nature which I like.

Got a few errands done so I can finally scratch a couple of items off my October To Do List.
Attended the Christmas dinner at church so my tummy is full. Now on the couch ready to relax.
I am a bit exhausted and will likely sleep well.

Hi girls

Hugs going out to you Susan and prayers that your bro in law doesn't suffer much longer and that God takes him home to rest sooner rather than later.

Mayie that blog is on my page so help yourself to the read!! Hope your physio goes well and that you enjoy your dinner. I bet you sleep well tonight!!

Glad you're feeling better Judy and Caz I hope you follow suit.

Lovely that you are feeling better Joy and I am like you, few if any Christmas decorations are put up in our home. Everyone is so busy at Christmas time so we seldom have company and I just don't see the need to spend 2 or more hours decorating the tree and another 2 hours taking it down. I do have decorative decorations that I set out, like baskets etc. End of story.

Hi Patti enjoy the weekend and have fun while you're at it!

I'm in the process of doing laundry, getting wine bottles sterilized for next use, vacuuming and I want to get outside for a walk yet today as the weather is sooo beautiful and yes sunny.

Have a great day everyone and don't overdo it.
